American Silliness Aug 10, 2016

Weasel Zippers, as always, is a treasure trove for this sort of thing:

Lib Rag Salon Complains Coverage Of Olympics Is Sexist…  "Didn't the media make a big deal out of Michael Phelps becoming new dad but Solon thinks if you mention a woman being a mom it's sexist."

White House Touts Article On How Blacks Can “Survive At A White Institution”…

25 LGBT Groups Ask Big 12 Not To Admit BYU Because It’s A Mormon-Based School…

Boston Red Sox Cancel David “Big Papi” Ortiz Bobblehead Night After Declaring It Racist…   "For the record it wasn’t Ortiz who declared the dolls “racially insensitive,” it was team president Sam Kennedy (a white guy)." . . .

Salon Flips Out Over Reports Describing Women Olympians as Wives and Mothers  "You can always count on progressives to hate on wives and motherhood, and to find any excuse to demean the family unit."

Among all this silliness, here at least, sanity prevailed:

U. Houston Student Govt Rescinds Suspension of VP for All Lives Matter Post  "Last week on The Torch, FIRE’s Will Creeley explored the legal and practical issues surrounding a decision by the University of Houston Student Government Association (SGA) to suspend its vice president, Rohini Sethi, in response to her Facebook post: “Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like #AllLivesMatter.” On August 5, the SGA announced on Facebook that Sethi’s suspension has been lifted and the SGA’s judicial branch would review whether the bill that authorized the suspension violated the SGA’s bylaws."

No special sharia rules in American courts for Muslims’ wrongful-death recovery 

"But there, too, the principle is simple: American courts apply American law, including when an American law principle calls on American courts to enforce a foreign judgment . . ."
. . . "(For instance, a contract calling for the cutting off of a person’s hand would be unenforceable; a will calling for a court to apply a legal rule that requires the court to distinguish males from females might be unenforceable, though a will calling for a court to distribute property to named parties would be enforceable.)"
